Rory McIlroy on WhoSay

Rory McIlroy is reportedly in talks with Nike on a sponsorship deal that could be worth upwards of $250 million.

But even the world's No. 1 golfer can use a little extra dough now and then, so when Graeme McDowell told McIlroy he would give him $50 if McIlroy ate a bowl of broccoli with blueberry yogurt, McIlroy happily accepted. The duo are in China for the BMW Masters, and right before indulging on his bizarre snack, McIlroy tweeted the above photo.

Despite all the pressure attached with the label of world's best golfer, McIlroy has showed that he isn't afraid to have some fun.

The Hofmann Sausage Co. has cooked up what it calls "America's Greatest Hot Dogs" since 1879, making it the country's oldest manufacturer of this product. But if you haven't heard of Hofmann's, that's because the company has stayed local, never straying too far from its Syracuse roots.

But that's all about to change, as one Texas entrepreneur is bringing the franks across the country in an attempt to crack the hot dog hierarchy and, once and for all, back up Hofmann's grandiose claim.

"We're the best hot dog in the world," says Hofmann's CEO Frank Zaccanelli. "And we'll put our money where our mouth is to prove it."

Zaccanelli, a Dallas businessman and former president of the Dallas Mavericks, convinced Rusty Flook, the great-grandson of the company's founder, to sell the company last May. Hofmann's had taken a mostly local approach throughout its history, but Zaccanelli had an audacious plan to take the company nationwide and then global. Zaccanelli, who grew up in Syracuse and has devoured Hofmann's for his entire life, promised Flook he wouldn't change the recipe.

"If it ain't broke," Zaccanelli says, "why fix it?"

It's been a bumpy road for Enes Kanter. In 2010 the Turkish big man signed on to play at Kentucky, but he was ruled ineligible after it was discovered that he received benefits from his European club. After being drafted third overall by the Utah Jazz, Kanter managed just 13 minutes per game in his lockout-shortened rookie season.

But now Kanter is healthier than ever and ready to demonstrate why he has always been so highly touted. And his work ethic is already showing. Kanter, who earned the nickname "Big Turkey" because of his weight, showed up to the Jazz's training camp at a trim 242 pounds. That's a 30-pound drop from where he was during the 2012 NBA season, and a 51-pound swing from his weight two months ago.

How did he do it? Anyone who follows him on Twitter knows he's been putting in serious work at the gym, but he told the Salt Lake Tribune that's he also drastically changed his diet. Here's what he was eating before:

"First my breakfast: I was eating like six eggs, omelet with six eggs; seven or eight pancakes, with sugar, whipped cream, everything; then a breakfast burrito. That was just my breakfast. Then I came to practice and my lunch was just like pasta, chicken alfredo or whatever, and then a burger and an appetizer. Dessert? No. Dessert was at dinnertime. Dinnertime I ate another burger, a big meal again and a dessert."

Now he says he's eating primarily salads and seafood. And apparently one or both of those items is on the menu at the Cheesecake Factory.
